Scouts and adult leaders, plan to attend our upcoming Swim Test at Scuba Adventures.  We will have the entire pool reserved to get you in and out as fast as possible. But due to COVID restrictions, we will likely be going in as small groups. An email or post on the troop website will provide additional details as needed.
A annual swim test is required to participate in any water activities in BSA. We have a upcoming troop canoeing campout to Big Ticket National Preserve. If you are going on this campout, or are attending Summercamp, or an high adventure outing to Northern Tier, you MUST have a valid swim test. This is the only swim test the troop will organize for 2021. Hope to see you there !!

If you cannot attend, Circle Ten Council has a swim test event on May 8 you could attend on your own.  (Info)
